Jockey Robby Albarado said, "He ran an amazing race, and I want to thank Mr. Farish (owner) and Mr. Howard. I thought I had it. It never feels good to lose. I just got beat."
Trainer Neil Howard added, "He ran well. I'm grateful to train a horse like him. I thought he went well. He had to go around horses and he got beat by one of the Kentucky Derby favorites. I really couldn't tell if we had won the race."
